A US Marine has been arrested for allegedly sodomizing a 13-year-old in Arizona, arrest records indicate.
The Yuma Police Department reported that US Marine Jaylen Jackson was taken into custody on April 21.
Officers were dispatched to a sexual offense that occurred in the 1600 block of W. 34th Place.
An initial investigation revealed that 19 year old Jaylen Jackson allegedly had sexual relations with a 13 year old female.
Jackson -who is assigned to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing out of MCAS Miramar, CA- was arrested and booked into the Yuma County Detention Center on several charges, to include sexual conduct with a minor and molestation of a child.
The 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing issued the following statement to News 11:
“A Yuma based Marine, assigned to 3rd MAW was taken into custody on 22 April by the Yuma Police Department and is currently being held at the Yuma County Detention Center awaiting arraignment. 3rd MAW takes all allegations of misconduct seriously as such behavior stands in stark contrast to our core values of honor, courage and commitment, and does not reflect the discipline and professionalism displayed by the vast majority of our Marines and Sailors. Those who engage in misconduct are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice and civilian criminal statutes. The Yuma Police Department is still investigating, therefore, it would be
inappropriate to comment further on an ongoing investigation.”
This case is still under investigation.
